Science Made Public: Forecasting New England "Red Tides"

3:00 PM • Ocean Science Exhibit Center

Science Made Public: Forecasting New England "Red Tides"

Each year, coastal waters of the Gulf of Maine are prone to blooms of the harmful algae, Alexandrium fundyense. The algae pose no direct threat to human beings, however the toxins they produce can accumulate in filter-feeding organisms such as mussels and clams — which can cause paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) in humans who consume them. To insure the shellfish we consume is safe, harvesting areas are carefully monitored by state agencies. Learn more about the work scientists have done to develop a forecasting system to help the shellfish industry and environmental managers better plan for the annual bloom.

“SCIENCE MADE PUBLIC” LECTURE SERIES: On Tuesday, July 7, at 3:00 p.m., the WHOI Ocean Science Exhibit Center will host a presentation by Senior Scientist Dennis McGillicuddy titled “Forecasting New England "Red Tides.” Each year, coastal waters of the Gulf of Maine are prone to blooms of the harmful algae, Alexandrium fundyense. The algae pose no direct threat to human beings, however the toxins they produce can accumulate in filter-feeding organisms such as mussels and clams - which can cause paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) in humans who consume them. To insure the shellfish we consume is safe, harvesting areas are carefully monitored by state agencies. Learn more about the work scientists have done to develop a forecasting system to help the shellfish industry and environmental managers better plan for the annual bloom. The “Science Made Public” talks are free and open to the public. The WHOI Ocean Science Exhibit Center is located at 15 School Street in Woods Hole.
